Against: poor new management, not well rounded waiters, increase careless in dishes presentation, poorer customer service, loosing character. I didn't been served the regular French baguette with butter, offered to all other customers surrounding me; but, I'd been charged the service (12.5%) as everyone. Good things: still having a good taste, food still very good.

We have dined here a number of times when visiting our daughter in London. Once you enter the restaurant you think you are in France. Not the best decor, but the food certainly makes up for it. Staff all seemed pleasant and the food was delicious, what more can you ask for.

Bad service and mediocre food just like in Paris! We went there for brunch today, the staff were stand offish and spoke to us quite bluntly, not a warm and inviting start. We ordered 2 coffees, I asked for the Gastro special and my friend the brioche and jam. It took a while before anyone came out, the first thing... More

Eaten here before (its got a lovely terrace outside to sit on sunny days) and it was usually quite bad but its one of the very few places to eat outside near clapham highstreet, a bit far from the noise of the main road. Went again this week and though service is still pretty much non existent (we arrived at... More

The trouble with Cla'hm is venues with atmosphere. If you want chicken or a kebab, you're spoiled for choice. However, trying to jam continental sophistication into a place that was designed to be a working class residential area, with a common positively bursting with semi naked MPs, was always going to be an issue. People either lived here and didn't... More

It's been some years since I've eaten at Gastro, and now I remember why. The service is poor, the decor is grimy and hasn't changed in a couple of decades, and neither has the food - simply appalling produce and not a place I think I'll ever eat in again (unless I forget how bad it is, like this time!)

Table for 4 on a warm Saturday night was great fun throughout.....smiling service, excellent food warm and well prepared. Good bottle of champagne, then into action. The escargots were good, mussels excellent. My beef tartare was fine and both the veal and the chicken good with a cracking bottle of red and then into the puds,....creme brûlée for most plus...

We went to Gastro in late 2013 and had a good experience with great service and lovely food. We decided to go again for a birthday lunch and were bitterly disappointed. When we arrived there was very little attention paid to us and we had to ask for water and menus. For a restaurant that isn't cheap at all you... More
